Thank You, Father

Thank You, Father
For the extent of Your love
And Your mercy,
That You sent Your only Son
To pay for our sins,
And set us free
For the murderer,
The thief, the liar,
For the adulterer; 
Your faithful love is higher
Yet You reached down to us
You sent Your Son, Jesus
To break the chains of death
And breathe on us
With resurrection breath
So we can boldly come
And bow before Your throne,
Exalted in the heavens
Yet You call us, now, Your own
Children of the Father,
Of the King of Kings
Because You have adopted us,
Your praise we'll ever sing
